Hamza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for his son's school fees and uniforms.

Hamza's story

Hamza is a maize farmer and a member of Babban Gona. Hamza joined Babban Gona primarily to create a better future for his son: Abubakar. Before he became a Babban Gona member, Hamza would have had to sell his maize for low prices soon after harvest to cater for his immediate cash needs such as food and clothing. With this loan and Babban Gona’s support, Hamza can now store his maize at harvest time and sell it a few months later for up to 40% higher than the market price at harvest. When asked, Hamza spoke of his ambition to use the additional income to educate his son, eventually hoping to make more money for himself and his family.
